So i asked them had they heard of TPS cos'this number is on it .Could i have their web site so i could browse .
They put the phone down on me .
As TPS registration only prevents marketing calls, organisations will still be able to call you for the purposes of genuine market research.
I always give them a 'sorry, no thanks'. It costs nothing and I've never seen the point in being offensive to someone just to make yourself feel better.vernon said:It's easier to save your breath and just put the phone down without speaking.
Having said that, my son sometimes works in a call centre and has horrific tales of the abuse that they sometimes have to deal with.
